In what has become an almost-annual tradition, the NHL just announced that Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk's been named a finalist for the Selke Trophy as the league's best defensive forward--and Datsyuk's made history by being named a finalist for six straight years, the most in Selke Trophy history!
ERGERON, DATSYUK AND TOEWS NAMED SELKE TROPHY FINALISTS
NEW YORK (May 15, 2013) -- Centers Patrice Bergeron of the BostonBruins, Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks are the three finalists for the 2012-13 Frank J.

Members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association submitted ballots for the Selke Trophy at the conclusion of the regular season, with the top three vote-getters designated as finalists. The winner will be announced during the 2013 Stanley C...

Red Wings coach Mike Babcock tried to limit the speculation on star center Pavel Datsyuk's future, when Babcock told reporters in Chicago on Wednesday that there's "zero" chance the magic man will leave Detroit and return home to play in Russia.
Datsyuk has one year remaining on a seven-year, 46.9 million contract. He could be an unrestricted free agent during...
The Detroit Red Wings played a grueling series against the Ducks of Anaheim in the playoffs’ first round, and it showed Wednesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.
In the first game of the second round, the Red Wings looked outmatched, getting outshot by a whopping margin of 42-21. Detroit was able to battle and take a 1-1 tie into the third period, but it was then that the...
As Mike Babcock gave the obituary for his Detroit Red Wings at the hands of the Predators last April, he noted the series was not close.
Detroit, the dominant NHL franchise of the last 20 years, had lost in five games. Conseqeuntly, Babcock vowed to fix the problems.
"One thing about it is we're going to have lots of time and we'll be able to get figured out what we...
I don’t know how to put this, but the Red Wings are kind of a big deal. 22 consecutive playoff appearances. On Sunday, they (as a seventh seed) took down a two-seed in Anaheim. They open the Western Conference semifinals tonight (Wednesday) against the top-seeded Blackhawks.
With every playoff appearance in recent years comes a playoff anthem. Whether you like hip...
Of all the players from last night’s failure that could be talked about in a non-positive light, I would think that Howard would not be one of them. I would be wrong, though. Sure there are some fans out there who don’t really know any better. They see the other team score and want to blame the last guy to screw up, meaning the goalie. But I didn’t expect to see a report on...
The Grand rapids Griffins sent out a press release last night stating that the Wings were swapping their third goaltenders, but the press release also marked an absolutely stunning achievement in terms of the Wings' player development model:
RED WINGS SWAP McCOLLUM FOR PEARCE; GRIFFINS SIGN JENSEN
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday assigned goaltender...

It took seven games, but a Detroit Red Wings team that almost didn’t make the playoffs showed up in a big way in the first round, ousting the second-seeded Anaheim Ducks in a series not many pundits expected the Wings to win. Not only did Detroit move on, they did so behind the stellar net play of star goalie Jimmy Howard, who posted a 2.74 Goals Against...

The Detroit Red Wings have been in the Western Conference for like, I don't know, 30 years. Something like that. The specifics escape me and most of you know the weight I give facts, anyway.
Well, there are a few--facts, that is--that I like to fall back on. They help me sleep. They make me feel warm, almost like the Speed Racer footy pajamas I wore my freshman (and only...

On Sunday night, the Detroit Red Wings officially exceeded the expectations of most by beating the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 to win their opening playoff series 4-3. The Detroit organization and its players will not admit that they have exceeded expectations or that they are done just yet, but the Red Wings should...

How CHI got here:
W 2-1 (OT), W 5-2, L 2-3 (OT), W 3-0, W 5-1 - - - apparently, by laying waste to Minny (see below).
In the first round, a few prognisticators gave the Wings a chance. Not so in round 2, everybody and their dog have the 'Hawks winning this series (oh, just stop looking in the mirror); statistically you can readily see why. Little brother are a freaking...
